Some of you have asked about me and what may be wrong. As some of you know I suffer from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, a degenerative nerve condition that has no known treatment and causes pain that is ranked as often the worst pain a human can suffer. It is always causing pain, 24 hours a day that occasionally flares into pain that is horrific. I suffered such a flare earlier this month. The effect on a person, as you can imagine is beyond description. It also puts me at a disadvantage financially.
Unfortunately, with this most recent flare of my CRPS distracting me, my youngest corgi Honey developed Open Pyometra an infection of the uterus. She sadly developed an illness that was not immediately apparent. On January 18th it became obvious she was in severe distress. I had to decide to borrow money and use every dime I had on hand for my bills to pay for emergency treatment. These bills are substantial. The person I borrowed the money from did so only with the agreement that they are paid back as rapidly as possible which is difficult with a total that is nearly a 3rd of my annual income.
The bill for the emergency vet Blue Pearl was $772.46 just to get her stabilized enough to wait for emergency surgery at our regular vet. Blue Pearl could have done the surgery then and there but quoted me $8-10K to do so. Fortunately, I got her into our regular Vet Dr. Jim Hughes but again with a substantial bill of $2712.96. These bills are in the photos. The total is $3485.72 plus another approximately $200 in over-the-counter food, medicine, and supplies. There will also be follow-up costs added to this figure.
